This Hostel was awesome. Definitely the best value hostel we stayed in. Breakfast was awesome and included omelets. The people who run this hostel were amazing and the most accommodating people I have ever met. They bent over backwards to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. I highly recommend this hostel.

Carlos is very accommodating, breakfast is very good! The staff will pretty much bend over backwards to suit your needs and are great people. You do have to knock on the door every time you want to enter but never had any trouble getting let in. You also have to let Carlos know about 10 mins in advance when you want a hot shower but that never really bothered us.

Good hostel with really attentative and helpful staff. Carlos the owner didn't speak much English but he really did help with everything to a great length, using google translate to help. Small place and very homely dining area (think it is shared with the owners) with ok breakfast offering omelette and the usual breads, jams etc. Hot water was a little luke warm even after asking but not too bad. A little away from the main square but peaceful little street.

We had to ask in advance for hot water to be turned on for each shower, which was very painful given we could not always plan ahead as to when we would be wanting a shower. Additionally we had to knock and wait to be admitted every time we returned to the accommodation, which was ok, but felt awkward if we were coming and going a lot, or coming home later (early morning) from a night out. Staff tried to be very helpful, but on the whole, I would not stay there again.

I cannot say enough good things about Raquel and Yawamarki. She was so attentive to our every need. She always had mate ready to serve. Breakfast was delicious (either eggs or yogurt, and always bread and jam). She frequently called taxis for us. She even helped us store our bags for a day after we returned from Machupicchu! For free! Raquel is like your Cusquenian Godmother. A true joy. The only difficulty we had was finding her place. Luckily, the people of Cusco were helpful when we asked.

Great hostel. Raquel doesn't speak English, but met our needs by using a translator. The location is very close to the main square. Breakfast was great. The rooms were spacious and clean. There is no heat in the rooms/hostel, so at night it is very cold, he does provide multiple blankets though. The showers are not hot. He will turn on the hot water, but it only warm water with little pressure. Overall, I would recommend this hostel, staff is super helpful. Taxi from airport should be S10-15.

Booked this as a more relaxing option after doing the salkantay trek. The place was hard to find (no sign..) and our room type wasn't available. Mostly I was disappointed because for some reason I thought it had looked modern in the photos, but it's not and feels more like you're staying in someone's house. Still very cozy and nice and a good option if that's what you're looking for.

Staff here were so helpful. We were able to leave our bags while we went on the inca trail despite not coming back to stay another night. The hot water had to be asked to switch on but then worked very well. We were offered tea whenever needed and help if we needed it! Also our laundry was done fairly quickly which was excellent. When my friend was sick, raquel was very helpful in getting us an English speaking doctor as well. Thank you!

We stayed one night and checked out - very dated - no hot water - towel was hard - location poor - had to walk down garbage filled alley to narrow streets to get to center of town - sidewalk was 6" - had to pay in full to Rachel - was hoping to get some reimbursement - unable to communicate and cancel the rest of stay as there was a security lock on my msn account. Lost $90+ dollars but was happier when changed to a better Hostal more centrally located, secure and pleasant.

This B&B is great!! It's not too far from the city center, the private ensuite we had was very clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was terrific. The hotel manager only speaks minimal English, but we were able to communicate with our Spanglish. This is not a party hostel, but if you are a couple looking for a good night's sleep and an excellent launch point to explore Cusco!!

We really enjoyed our five night stay in Yawarmaki. It was quiet, clean and comfortable and Rachel was the nicest and friendliest host we have come across to date. When we were leaving, Rachel called us a taxi and waited with us in the freezing cold to make sure we got the right taxi to bring us to the bus station safely! Her kindness made Yawarmaki feel more like a homestay/B
